Happy February 1st!
How fast has this month gone! Can’t believe January is over already. Crazy!
I’ve had a pretty alright reading month, considering I’ve been pretty busy with college assignments. The upcoming months will probably be poor reading months, due to college being super busy. I finish in May/June and don’t start University until September, so I’ll get to fit a lot of reading in over the summer! (Hopefully)
I managed six books in January. Some good reads and some pretty bad reads:
Days of Blood and Starlight – Laini Taylor
Rating: 5/5 stars
I started off the year with an amazing book! I loved every moment of this book, I maybe even enjoyed it more than the first one!? I am enjoying this series so much, I cannot wait to pick the last book. I really hope it ends well!
The Foxhole Court – Nora Sakavic
This is where things started to go downhill…
This book was a quick read for me, but it was so dull. I was bored through all of it, I didn’t like any of the characters and the writing was poor! I picked this up due to a lot of people comparing it with The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater. All I can say is: HOW DARE THEY! The Raven Cycle is an absolute masterpiece. To compare Maggie Stiefvater’s beautiful writing with this trash is frankly insulting.
I won’t be continuing this series.
King’s Cage – Victoria Aveyard
This is a 2-star read, but I gave an extra star because Maven.
I have a mini review/rant on my Goodreads if you’re interested, it’s here.
To Kill A Kingdom – Alexandra Christo
Rating: 3.75 Stars
I have a full review post on this, if you’re interested in my full in-depth thoughts you can read my post here.
Spellslinger – Sebastien De Castell
My audiobook of the month!
I loved this audiobook, it was so so so good.
I have a full review on this, check it out here.
I cannot wait to continue this series!
Prince of Thorns – Mark Lawrence
Probably the most disappointing read this month. I really expected to like this, I love a good anti-hero. This book was completely dire. It took me 10 days to read it, as I had no desire to keep on reading, it was boring.
A full review will be up for this soon, I’ll link it once it’s up.
So that’s all the books I read in January. Not a great start to the year, to be honest.
I really enjoyed Days of Blood and Starlight, To Kill A Kingdom and Spellslinger. The rest were disappointing. Maybe I should stop reading hyped books, or lower my expectations!
